Life at Last Word
There are so many reasons to come and work for us at Last Word. Not only will you connect with great people, gain career opportunities and learn plenty on the job, but you will also find that we are a company made up of a vibrant team of young, dynamic employees who work hard but also appreciate the well-earned down time. We believe that a happy, strong team makes for a much better work environment. Therefore, we regularly organise internal events throughout the year, have informal monthly gatherings (breakfast with smoothies, lunch with fresh coffee & cakes or afternoon beers with snacks) for everyone to catch up away from their desks – it's also a chance to meet any new recruits!
Employee engagement is very important to us, and to keep our people in the loop with what’s going on across the company, we hold an annual Company Offsite. This allows us to come together to share business updates, review the last year, discuss plans for the following year and allow staff to discuss and put forward their suggestions on new business ventures and on how to make Last Word a better place to work. The day is wrapped up with some fun and games – this year’s offsite took place at Bounce, where we had our own LW table tennis Tournament.
Staff wellbeing is something we pride ourselves on, so we have a regular calendar of events and a yearly ‘wellness week’ to ensure our employees are looking after themselves. So far we’ve had:
- A full body analysis with recommendations
- A money management session to help our employee’s financial wellbeing
- A PT & Fitness session
- Healthy cookery class
- Regular wellness workshops
Last Word Media also offers an opportunity to participate in a number of benefits:
- Company pension
- Season ticket loan
- Cycle to work scheme
- Childcare vouchers
- A bespoke development offering
- Create a team that is happy, entrepreneurial, inspirational and engaged.
- Build lasting relationships with every client in every market we serve.
